    Signing Tevin Coleman to a 2 yr 10 mil deal isn't going hog wild.

    I like Crennel getting underappreciated talent. I'm fairly confident he'll coach them up. Calvin, Roby, Boddy-Calhoun, JJoe, Hal, Ried, Gipson, maybe a couple of draft picks... I think we'll be solid on the back end.

    I would rather Gaine get appreciated talent.

    True.

    But there are a lot of bad coaches out there. Be a shame not to take advantage of it.

    I feel Crennel is a good coach. If someone were to say our issues on defense were due to talent issues I'd be inclined to side with them.

    If he could acquire some up in your face, bump and run, shutdown type corners. He wouldn't have to rely on this bend but don't break defensive strategy.

    As little as some may want to admit, even when our front 7 had all the time in the world, they could seldom get to the QBs.

    disagree. cb and back field gave up pass less than 2 seconds most of times like it was nothing or get burned.

    Agree, It could be scheme, talent or combination, but with a front seven of Watt, Mercilus and Clowney, the defense just does not seem to bring that consistent intensity, pressure and ferocity that you would expect from that trio. I know it might be an unpopular opinion, but the tape doesn't lie.

    I would say the Eagles also spent generously in FA.

    They rebuilt their entire receiving corps and Wiesnewski plus made trades to improve their secondary/RB's

    Rams almost pulled it off this yr. Probably would've except BB took a young HC to the woodshed.

    The article was about signing high dollar free agents like Solder & Brown not $2.5 mil guys like Wiesnewski..

    How many TE's do we need? Still don't have ONE worth a damn in my opinion. Used two draft choices last year.

    Agreed. It sucks to lose Matthieu but it looks like crennel has a plan. He's reloading the secondary

    The offense is a different story.

    Meanwhile OB is scouting the TE's in this draft.
